Here are some reviews from our past travellers to Egypt. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.
This was a very good tour which gave you a very good understanding of the ancient history of Egypt and some insight into the current situation in Egypt and the lives of many Egyptians. The tour leader was simply superb and provided a compelling narrative as to the ancient sites we visited enlivened by his up to date knowledge of recent discoveries due to his parallel life as an Archaeologist.
The hotel used at Giza(Meridien) had an amazing view from the pool towards the pyramids and was a convenient base for visits to pyramids including the son et lumiere. Cruise boat used on the Nile was much better than I expected with roomy cabins, good public rooms and a wide choice of food with a la carte dinner and buffet breakfast and lunch. The hotel used in Cairo(Fairmont) was a little out of centre and was alittle disappointing although the dinner we had in the Lebanese restaurant was very good.
Highlights for me were the museum in Cairo and the nightime visit to temple in Luxor.”
This is my second trip to Egypt with On The Go. My guides this year were Mahmoud and Alam, both of whom were excellent guides. Both are outgoing and knowledgeable about the sites visited. ”
Very well organised, a great mix of sightseeing and free time to enjoy the Nile as we cruised along.
All transfers were efficient and on time.
Our guide was very generous with his time and the additional information he gave us about life in Egypt was most interesting.
He was also very generous with his iPhone switching on his 'hot spot' to allow us to send emails home, in areas where we had no wifi available - I hope his phone bill was not huge!
The low point was the overnight train to Luxor, it was not very pleasant, I should have flown.
The people on the group were all terrific.”
